On 6th July 2020 the Warwickshire Industrial Archaeology Society and the Leamington History Group are proud to announce that this is one of the two books chosen for a Publications Award by the Association for Industrial Archaeology. The Judges were all “very impressed by the amount of work involved and the great variety of illustrations which were included”. The prize is £300.

An ideal Present for that special person.

A long-term joint research project by Warwickshire Industrial Archaeology Society and Leamington History Group has come to fruition with the publication of “The Ironmen of Leamington”. The team was led by Martin Green and Mick Jeffs and looked at the story of iron objects produced in the town and the people who made them in the nineteenth century. Examples of the products include coal-hole covers, balconies and railings and vast cooking ranges. It is probably no surprise to learn that the firm of Flavel was the only one which survived and thrived into the next century; the works is now run by Rangemaster.

The book has 203 pages and is well illustrated with many images in colour.
The cover price is £18 and it is  available at a special price of £12 to LHG and WIAS members.

It was published on 29th April 2019

Copies are available at Waterstones and the Visitors’ Centre and at our meetings at South Lodge, Jephson Gardens, the Parade at 10.00 am to 12.00 pm on most Tuesday mornings OR at our monthly meetings – View Details Here
